For many, Election Day marks the end of a long period of political ads and campaigning. But for anyone committed to ending poverty, it’s the beginning of a lot of questions. What will Congress look like when the dust settles? And more importantly, what will that mean for policies that affect children living in poverty here and around the world?
Well, we don’t claim to have all the answers, but one thing we do know is that a lot of change is inevitable. An average of 22 House members retire every two-year cycle, but this time, a total of 71 House members did not seek reelection or resigned from office! All 435 members of the House of Representatives and one-third of U.S. Senators are up for re-election – we are looking at more than 1 in 6 completely new members of Congress!
What does this mean for issues we care about? Sign up below to join World Vision’s post-election conference call for expert analysis of the new U.S. Congress.
We’ll highlight advocacy successes and challenges from the past two years, give you a sneak peek at what’s ahead for 2019, and reveal two simple and important ways you can influence your leaders on behalf of children before the year ends.
Plus, all participants will be entered to win a copy of Live Justly, a 10-week small group study on justice and advocacy!
Sign up below to receive the call-in details for our next conference call!
